Update Oct. 19 - Shepherd Pups Dumped in Park

You may have heard the sad story of a young group of three German shepherd siblings that were abandoned recently and brought into our AHS Newark facility, (Read their full story here), but you wouldn't believe the twist to this story .. a fourth sibling was surrendered to the facility just a couple of days later by someone who decided to keep one of the litter. When he decided to eat some feces that he found outside, she was so disgusted by it that she decided she could "no longer kiss him" and needed to be rid of him. The puppy joined his brothers and they all headed down south to us at Popcorn Park where they will now begin to heal from the upsetting events that took place in their young lives.

Matthew, Shawn and Kahll, named for the AHS Newark staff members that began helping the pups to overcome their many fears when they arrived, where all abandoned in a park in Newark. The 4 to 5 month old puppies huddled together and stood terrified at the thought of being all alone in the big world. The patient and caring staff at our Newark facility began immediately offering them comfort, safety, and warm beds and a good meal. The pups were so scared that they cowered and trembled in the corner, and piled atop one another in the hopes of disappearing.

When their brother, Jonas, joined them soon after they arrived, we discovered that he too was quite terrified. When the boys arrived at Popcorn Park, they were immediately escorted to their large and comfy living quarters. They were all given much needed baths, as they were covered in feces and dirt. It appears that they were kept outside since along with being quite dirty, they already have fly-bitten ears.

The boys are all cleaned up now and comfortable, but now the real work begins. We will be working with them over the next couple of weeks to get them to overcome their fears and put whatever awful experiences that they have had in the past. It's absolutely heartbreaking that such young puppies already have been through so much and have so much fear and distrust, thanks to some cruel and heartless humans, but thankfully, they all show signs of wanting to relax, and wanting to be loved as well.

The boys are not available for adoption at the moment, as we will need time to work with them and socialize them. They will all need medical treatment as well and we are only able to help the special cases such as this thanks to our caring supporters that contribute to our Res-Q Fund. We rely on our Res-Q Fund time and time again and will be using it now to provide for these puppies in their time of need. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund to help. Thank you, and we will update again soon on Shawn, Matthew, Kahll and Jonas.
